Directions for the online application indicate Trump’s team will to some degree examine applicants’ conflicts of interest as part of a “personal data statement.” Trump himself will enter the presidency with unprecedented corporate and foreign entanglements.
“You will be asked about possible conflicts of interest deriving from your sources of income; all aspects of your personal and professional life, including organization which you belong or once belonged; speeches you may have given and books, articles and editorials you may have written; legal, administrative and regulatory proceedings to which you may have been a party; in short, anything that might embarrass the President or you if he should choose you for a position in his administration,” the site states.
Trump beat Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Tuesday night with 305 electoral votes to her 233.
